How to Add a Video to your WordPress Website

To add a video to WordPress, first upload it to a video site like YouTube. Then:

  1. Copy the link from the address bar in YouTube
  2. Paste the link into the WordPress editor, on a line by itself.

Hey presto, you’re done!

You can also post videos from many other video websites. See the WordPress video embed instructions. This link may come in handy too – it explains how to use the WordPress embed shortcode.
